The weather here in London is fabulous but I can't help but think about a beautiful walk we did when last in Cornwall visiting my parents.
It was on a particularly cold and blustery day during the Easter holidays but the colour of the sky was similar to what I'm seeing now.
The walk was on Lelant beach, looking across at Hayle Towans, where the Hayle Estuary runs into the Atlantic Ocean. There is a vast expanse of the most beautiful golden sands you could ever imagine and yet we had the whole place pretty much to ourselves.
On one side of the beach there are lovely high dunes, look beyond that and you see St Ives and on the other side, the open sea crashes against the sand in colours of turquoise and emerald green.
As we were walking along, I realised just why so many painters flock to Cornwall and I thought of John Miller, perhaps one of Cornwall's finest. But only when I looked him up on Google later did I see that he loved it here too!
Enjoy the weekend, apparently it's going to be a goodie and I think you've probably guessed where I wish I could be!
